The recently posted hotfixes should be live now and Blizzard’s holding a double XP weekend as an apology for the delays starting this Friday.
Additionally, players that were using exploits to level up their gems will have them reverted to a rank that would have been legitimately achievable prior to the patch going live.
I know you’ve been eagerly awaiting an update, so a few things to share with you:
First, we extended the post cap on this thread. Let’s try to keep discussion and feedback on this topic here as best we can to keep our General forums more organized.
Secondly, the hotfix has now been deployed. This should be applicable to all regions at this time. Thank you so much for your patience!
Lastly, we will be rolling back Legendary Gem levels to the maximum gem level that would have been legitimately achievable prior to the patch going live. As with all previous exploits, any additional actions we may take will not be discussed outside of our staff and offending individuals.
We will be holding a double XP weekend starting Friday, July 14 at 5 p.m. PT and ending Monday, July 17 at 10 a.m. PT as an apology for the delays and our gratitude for your patience as we address this issue. Thank you to all who issued reports and helped us uphold the spirit of Play Nice, Play Fair!
